    Introduction: Cerebral palsy is characterized by a group of posture and movement disorder which can be aggravated. Children with cerebral palsy are lacking plantar cutaneous afferent which provides information to control upright posture. A new approach to induce postural response by plantar vibratory stimulation was suggested for children with cerebral palsy. Methods: Seven children with cerebral palsy, five boys and two girls, aged 11.41 (1.97) years with diagnoses of spastic diplegia, participated in this study. The participants stood barefooted, with their vision and auditory perception blocked, on the standing frame placed on the force plate. Twelve vibration conditions under three frequencies (20, 60 and 100 Hz) and four locations (left forefoot, right forefoot, left rear foot and right rear foot) were tested for every participant.
